Publisher's Summary

Ten months ago, Elizabeth Baker uncovered a dangerous secret about her politician husband - a secret that nearly got her killed. Now she and her children are running for their lives. When Beth is hired as the caretaker of a remote Pennsylvania estate, she dares to hope she has found a corner of the world where Congressman Richard Baker can’t find them. But when her new boss dies suddenly and his nephew inherits the estate, Beth is faced with outwitting a former homicide detective who is very smart, very suspicious - and very attractive.

Forced into retirement by an injury and grieving the loss of his uncle, Jack O’Malley is unprepared to share his new home with a strange woman and her two kids. He is even less prepared for the instantaneous attraction he feels whenever Beth enters the room. She is beautiful, intelligent, kind…and obviously terrified of someone or something. As Jack’s investigation uncovers the shocking details of Beth’s past, the rural community is shaken by the murder of a local woman. Driven by instinct and desire, Jack is determined to keep Beth and her children safe, even if doing so means putting his heart - and his life - on the line.

    "Narrator is terrible!!"

    Narrator is terrible. Book is good. She tries to put too much sexy in her voice.

    "great story but painful to listen to"

    This was my first book of Linda Leigh and I enjoyed her writing. The characters were lovable and hateable....however the narrator was painful to listen to. She did a good job with the individual voices, but the narration for everything else was a soft raspy monotone type voice.... I was extremely disappointed. I thought I'd listened to her before, so Maybe she was trying out a new style. Whatever the case, I will not listen to this audio book again, and will be more careful when selecting a book narrated by Amy Rubinate.

    "Fan"

    Story was excellent but the reader sounded like a twelve year old. Hard to imagine when a man was speaking with such a young sounding voice. Could get a better reader voice for any other books I've said enough but the rating page won't except my rating, I guess.

    "A good mystery"

    The narration was mediocre but the story was interesting. A good mystery with plenty of characters to suspect.

    Story
    "This book sounds like it was read by a computer!"
    Would you try another book from Melinda Leigh and/or Amy Rubinate?

    Melinda Leigh, not sure. Amy Rubinate - No! I listened to the first five minutes and I couldn't go any further. Amy Rubinate seems to be a talented voice actress, I googled her and listened to a demo reel. But it really sounds like they sampled her voice and then used a speech synthesizer to read the book. Each sentence has the same ... inflection, cadence... it sounds very robotic.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Melinda Leigh again?

    Depends on who narrates the book.


    How could the performance have been better?

    I'm fairly forgiving as a listener, but this is the worst narration I've ever heard.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from She Can Run?

    Never got that far.

    Where does She Can Run rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This was a great book. Something is happening in each chapter. It made me wonder how far from the truth was these pages.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of She Can Run?

    When he was trapped in a wall of fire. When they were underground.


    Have you listened to any of Amy Rubinate’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No this was my first read from her.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It made me laugh,cry and hold my breath in a few stops.

    To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe.

    Story
    "Excellent!"

    Imagine getting a job, on the day to start work you show up and there is a hearse in the driveway. What do you do now, especially since you have 2 young children with you and this was to be their new home? I admired the heroine in this story. She was a strong, caring mother, determined to protect her family. The synopsis for this story is spot on, but there is a side murder mystery going on in the story that was very interesting and kept me riveted. I thoroughly enjoyed this story.
    Now my only problem is the narrator. She sounded too girlish, a young girl if you will. The woman in this story is a mature woman, twice married, with 2 children, the narrator made her sound like a high school valley girl. I was able to get past this because the story was very interesting, so if you can over look her lil girlish voice you will find the story is very good.

    Story
    "Good story. Horrible, horrible narrator."
    Would you try another book from Melinda Leigh and/or Amy Rubinate?

    Yes, I loved the story however the narrator was absolutely horrible. She did ok on the characters voices but the straight reading was so monotone it was just about unbearable. If I wasn't so "into" the story, I would have returned it for another book. After dozens and dozens of books and many different narrators, this is the worse one and the only one which led me to even consider returning a book. I'm sorry, I know that's mean and I've questioned people before who gave bad reviews of narrators; now I realize how they felt. If the narration is bad, the book is way off.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Amy Rubinate’s performances?

    Never.


    Do you think She Can Run needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No. I'm satisfied with the ending.


    Any additional comments?

    Listen to the narrator before you buy to see if you can tolerate her voice.

    What disappointed you about She Can Run?

    I'm not a very big fan of the cross between crime- and love stories that seem to be a getting big especially with female crime writers. I don't mind a love story intertwined with the crime plot but sometimes, as with this novel, it just feels a little bit to Danielle Steele-ish for my taste.
